Japanese whisky has been one of the hottest categories in the past few years, with several labels winning awards, accolades and even being named the World’s Best Whisky.
With the rise in popularity of Japanese whisky and the discontinuation of many aged whisky such as aged Yamazaki and Hibiki, it has become increasingly difficult to purchase this type of whisky—abroad and in Japan. However, whisky enthusiasts can still enjoy Japanese aged whisky tasting at local whisky bars without the high cost of paying for a rare bottle of aged whisky at a premium.
In this 2 hour small group Japanese aged whisky tasting tour, visit a local bar with your tour guide to taste various types of Japanese aged whisky and learn about the subtleties and differences of these different brands, how the whiskies are aged and what sets the Japanese whisky apart from others around the world. You will also be able to experience what a local bar in Tokyo feels like, as you enjoy the atmosphere, talk to the bartender (with the help of your English-speaking tour guide) and sip on your chilled whisky (spelled "whisky" not "whiskey" in Japan).
